I totally feel you! I use to be in the middle too when I first started freelancing and gaining new clients. I was all over the place until I learn to set clear expectations and boundaries with my time. Now I can say I am mostly on the left side, and funny enough, the hardest part was not to come up with the expectations/boundaries but actually sticking to it myself. So wherever you are spending your time: ask yourself were the expectations laid out clearly? Are those boundaries reasonable or achievable? And are you following your plan of action or are you still trying to do it all?

That’s a good point! Making the boundaries is the easy part for sure! It takes a lot of effort and discipline to stick with them. It can be tough at first, but so worth it! And they should be something that’s doable. No reason to put expectations on yourself! We have to remember that’s it’s perfectly fine if we can’t achieve everything, just do what we can!

This is such a good reminder. It’s a challenge to prioritize self-care when you’re busy, but if you take time to take care of your needs, things are more balanced. It prevents burnout. It’s also a good reminder that self-care isn’t always picture perfect, it can be allowing yourself the time to feel negative emotions.

I completely agree. Burnout is a very real thing and it’s so easy to avoid once you really focus on yourself and your needs. Yes!! It’s perfectly fine to experience those negative emotions too!! We’re all human! I think allowing yourself to experience them allows you to avoid holding onto them. So important!

I'm usually in the both category these days... but I when I am feeling exhausted and stressed, I take that time to think of what I have accomplished and reflect on things I am grateful for.
